Suse 11.4 : The flash player should be installed with Yast / zypper
to insure security updates.

http://en.opensuse.org/Package_repositories
> Non-oss http://en.opensuse.org/Package_repositories#Non-oss

Install procedure : The file libflashplayer.so is copied or linked
to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
